Pre-Physical Therapy/Pre-Occupational Therapy

Pre-Physical Therapy

The Pre-Physical Therapy program is a pre-professional curriculum whereby all the necessary prerequisites can be completed in preparation for applying to a school of physical therapy. The department provides advising to assist each student in developing a plan best suited to his/her needs. Acceptance by physical therapy schools is on a competitive basis, therefore, a strong undergraduate academic record is essential. Students must declare a undergraduate major along with the pre-professional curriculum. If you want to go into physical therapy, you are probably looking at earning a doctorate degree. To get there, you must first obtain your bachelors degree and complete a number of prerequisite courses in biology, anatomy, physics, statistics, chemistry, physiology, psychology, professional writing and humanities. Together, these courses make up SDSU's Pre-Physical Therapy program. Make sure to check with each graduate program about any additional requirements that are specific to that program.
